In both stories, flashbacks are used to depict bad events, of the Holocaust. In “The Boy Who dared,” on page 164 it says “ ‘Good-bye, my friends,’ says Helmuth. ‘We will meet again.’ Helmuth huffs the ink dry on the last letter. It is 8:05 P.M. He reads it again, wonders what his family will think, wonders who will tell Mutti.
Kafka’s “Judgement” gives the reader characterization through the connections that the main character believes that he had with his father. The first indication that the man cannot be talking to his father can be demonstrated in the text, “So he’s even got pockets in his shirt.” (kafla, 48) this along with the footnote added by the editor, “*Kafkas variation on the German proverb that says the last shirt the shroud- has no pockets in it,” (Kafka, pg 48) assists the audience understand that Greorg 's father is dead, assuming that the audience knows a shroud was used to wrap up the dead. When using metaphors involving a living person with some association to being dead that character typically is dead. This plays throughout the entire story as he is even unable to think of a clever rebuttal to his father due to the fact that he 's having his father ramle in his head too much, it becomes evident in the scene where he almost falls over but doesnt so that it flows more easily in his head. The final time that the death becomes evident within the short story is before he jumps off the bridge as he says sorry to his mother and father when he could have told his father directly had he been actually alive.
These are Bruno's questions that he never lived to get the answers to. Movies are often based off its original form as a book. The films include major events, but are tweaked for the viewers enjoyment. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas movie contains additions, deletions, changes, and rearrangements to existing elements from the book. Like all relations from books to movies, they have similarities and differences.
This is first shown at the beginning of the text when ”Gregor’s father seized the chief clerk’s stick in his right hand… picked up a large newspaper from the table with his left, and used them to drive Gregor back into his room, stamping his foot at him as he went.“(Kafka, 10). It could be said that the father pushing Gregor into his room, symbolizes alienation, and could also be a foreshadow to Gregor’s isolation. This also shows how the father does not concern himself with Gregor’s transformation, which displays absurdity, a key pillar of existentialism and a motif of the text. Merriam-Webster defines existentialism as, ”a chiefly 20th century philosophical movement embracing diverse doctrines, but centering on analysis of individual existence in an unfathomable universe and the plight of the individual who must assume ultimate responsibility for acts of free will without any certain knowledge of what is right or wrong or good or bad“. This definition applies to the Metamorphosis, as Gregor is in an ”unfathomable universe“, and assumes ”ultimate responsibility for acts of free will“, as he believes he is responsible for forcing his family to provide for themselves.
During the hero 's initiation, he is most likely to get through a severe challenge. The passage in the book that confirms this is right after Holden gets knocked out by Stradlater. "I kept sitting there on the floor till I heard old Stradlater close the door and go down to the corridor to the can. Then I got up. I couldn 't find my goddam hunting hat anywhere.
In The Book Thief’s case, it is the society during the German World War II. Hans Hubermann for example, had to pretend he hated the Jews when in fact, he does not. “The Jew was whipped six times… blood dripped now from his ear… then it was Papa’s turn..” (Zusak 394) Max was afraid of men standing over him all throughout his life and now, he had to leave his family behind. When he arrived at 33 Himmel Street, he was advised to stay in the basement despite the place freezing. As far as Max was concerned, Death even said, “The basement was the only place for him as far as he was concerned.” (Zusak 207) Lastly, in spite of Rudy’s young age, he was also affected by the society.
The Diary of Anne Frank and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas are two very different stories. Anne Frank is a Jewish teenager living in hiding from nazis. Throughout the story Anne is wise in her years and is very aware of her family’s situation. Bruno on the other hand, is almost the complete opposite of Anne. Bruno is the son of a Nazi.
Elie Wiesel, the author of the novel Night writes his own personal accounts of experiencing the Holocaust through the character Eliezer. Eliezer and his father rely on one another to survive through the Holocaust. Together they encounter the cruelty of the Nazis, the lack of compassion from the prisoners, as well as the difficulty of simply surviving. They remain strong together unlike other father-son relationships seen in the novel. A majority of the prisoners gravitate towards self preservation while Eliezer chooses to remain with his father.
. it’s because he wants to stay inside.” (304) Jem realizes that with all the hate in the world Boo probably stays inside to avoid all of that and just wants some peace. At this point the readers view on Boo Radley has change from a psychopathic mad man to a kind boy who secretly cares for Jem and Scout. The next and final change in the readers view of Boo happen when he finally come outside of his house and openly meet the children for the first time in the story. This happens at the very end of the book when Jem and Scout are walking back for a school play and are attacked by Bob Ewell.
In both Mice and Snakes and in Harmonium, Armitage tackles the idea of death. Similar to Mice and Snakes, the ending of Harmonium is the premonition of his fathers death. The father mentions himself that he will be in the next coffin that the son carries. However, instead of the father seeming like the near-death person, the son is “too starved of breath to make itself heard”. This role-reversal shows that the son is actually the one that is most affected by the death of his father, and not the father

People tend to try to stay as close to those relationships and attempt to make the good relationships last, making friendship become part of their morals. This being said, when someone starts gain power, they are mostly able to keep their morals. In the book Night--a story about the firsthand experience of a boy who lives through The Holocaust written by Elie Wiesel--Elie and his father are in the notorious concentration camp Auschwitz. Elie’s father asks one of the guards where the bathroom is and, “he dealt my father such a clout that he fell to the ground, crawling back to his place on all fours”(48). Elie was so surprised and fear stricken that he did not even react to it, but he stated, “I thought only: I shall never forgive them for that”(48).
For example when he saw the little boy get hanged after being used as a sexual slave, or even when they had to eat snow with bread to fill their stomachs up. From him looking in the mirror he learns that he isn 't the same boy in Sighet, Transylvania, who had enough food to eat, a good place to lay his head at night, and a boy who had family. 4. Write your response to the book.. Night by Elie Wiesel was a interesting book. What I liked about this book was the fact that he actually wrote about how the nazi first came into their town acting like they cared about the jews then slowly, they moved from the ghetto to the camp.
“As for me, I was thinking not about death but about not wanting to be separated from my father. We had already been through so much, endured so much together. This was not the moment to separate.” Elie was so worried for his father he did not even bother caring about his foot and left the infirmary. He could not even fit his right shoe on, for his foot was too swollen. He found his father and asked him what they should do, if they should stay in the infirmary or if they should evacuate with the other Jews.
That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth mainly” (5). From the beginning we know that Huck is the narrator and Mr. Mark Twain is the author and that it is all right if you didn’t read the other novel. In doing so we feel as though a little boy is giving us his story, as it should be. This story will be the true story narrated by Huck Finn unfiltered. Huck for instance learns that “Moses had been dead” He therefore decides that he “ didn’t care no more about him…[because he] don’t take no stock in dead people” (6).
